A Day on the Trails and I Broke My Jeep

Sunday morning, bright and early, I hit the interstate heading North to the mountains of Pennsylvania. My destination... Rausch Creek Off Road Park for a much needed day of #JeepTherapy in four wheel low. It had been four months since the last time I was able to go wheelin'. 




I was looking forward to a day of trail riding, but at the same time nervous, because I was going to attempt some of the blue trails. The blue trails are a step up in difficulty from the green trails I had been running. 







But right off the bat before I even, or while I, put the Jeep into four wheel low I broke my Jeep. As I was shifting into 4 low the aftermarket Drake knob came off the transfer case shifter.


Most likely the set screw came loose from the everyday vibrations of the Jeep or I didn't tighten it enough.











But maybe I am just stronger than I thought. It should be an easy fix. I could use some blue loctite or even drill into the shaft and get a longer set screw. I will keep you posted on my solution.



Tomorrow I'll share with you how using my new Kodak PixPro 360 went.
